Finding parking in Wrigleyville is often difficult, and there are no public parking garages in the immediate vicinity of the theatre.

Directions for Traveling by Public Transportation
Take the Red Line train and exit at the Sheridan stop. Walk south on Sheridan to the next intersection; this intersection is confusing because at this point Sheridan, which mostly runs north and south, turns east, taking over from Byron Street and Sheffield continues south. Follow Sheridan left (east) and continue two blocks, to the intersection of Broadway & Sheridan. Walk one half a block south on Broadway to the theater. (Download a PDF map of the Chicago L.)
